No problem asking Tootles, after all, if we don't like the question we don't have to answer it huh?
I like the fact that, although I keep busy, it is with things that I chose to do, and at the time I chose to do them. I am not as fit or able as I once was, so take a bit longer to do things, which is fine, as I usually have a bit longer to do things! If I'm not so fit, I can take a day out and read books, and who cares? No one to chase me to do certain things at certain times- what's not to like? Not much money now, but never had that much to start with, nursing is not a job you do for nearly 50 years and come out of expecting to be rich!
We have also become grandparents this last year, our grandson is in Texas, which means we don't get called to baby sit, but thanks to the computer we do get to see him most weeks that way. We visited a very few weeks after he was born, and I, with my other son, am going again in March - lovely - and it will be warm there - can't wait from both points of view.
